3 Solutions To Common Storage Problems For Startups

After all the hard work and effort put into the set up of your business – your startup has finally taken off! While that may be a dream come true, indeed – that’s not the end of establishing your business.

You still have to be prepared for all sorts of challenges – such as staff shortage, devising marketing strategies, and promoting your products or services. Most importantly, you need to know how to solve all these problems so your business can keep growing and making profits.

Along with these issues, there is a problem that startups have to deal with on a daily basis; storage. This can be as small as storing of stationery to something big like having extra storage for space office equipment or items. Below, we will discuss three common storage problems startups face and how to solve them.

Finding a workspace with sufficient storage

Most startups struggle to find a workspace that provides them with enough space; they’re usually too small to store any office equipment or goods. On the other hand, a large workspace may come across as costly to a new business. Here’s when a self-storage comes in handy – it’s not only affordable but gives the extra storage space you need to store your office essentials.

At Work+Store, we have the cheapest self-storages to help ensure you acquire sufficient space at a low cost. Our storage units range from 6 sqft up to 730 sqft so you can choose a small or large workspace depending on your budget. All of our spaces also come with flexible lease terms – short term lease and contract transfer to other products and services within Work+Store or our parent company, LHN Group, providing a broad range – such as pop-up store location rental, vending machine spots, serviced offices and apartments, and event venues.

Organise and colour-code your files

Overstuffed files and documents which are jumbled together can take up more space than expected. Moreover, it can make it hard for you to retrieve the important files for a meeting or when compiling a report. What you should be doing to solve this problem is to use a filing cabinet and rearrange all your files once more. Place the important files in the top drawer, use manila folders for each account or business, and organise them according to colours for easier referencing.

If you feel like you need more space to start with – you may need a bigger workspace. At Work+Store, our workspaces start from 88 sqft onwards, and they’re even spread across many different locations within Singapore. They include Tampines, Upper Thomson, Aljunied, Pasir Panjang, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Bukit Merah, Kallang, Ang Mo Kio and Bartley. We’re even having a rent-free promotion for our Aljunied location to ensure you enjoy more savings. Contact us for more details. Terms and conditions apply.

Work and storage in one space

In case you are launching a product which physically requires assembling and storing, then any startup would require a space where their inventory can be stored. Leaving them all over the place can create clutter and affect employee productivity tremendously. That’s when the use of storage solutions like shelves and racks can help place these items and tidy your interiors. However, if you have office furniture or items that you don’t need to use until the near future – a self storage will serve as temporary storage for them.

Work+Store offers the cheapest self storages in Singapore, which comes with added security and convenience – all of them have 24-hour camera surveillance and accessibility. Besides giving you additional storage, we also want to make sure you have your basic business requirements met so you can focus on your daily operations with ease. By following a new concept of sharing work and storage space together – it becomes easier to manage goods and handle logistic procedures while meeting customers’ needs at the same time.

Although storage is an important aspect of any startup; you don’t have to invest a huge amount of money. You can always look towards affordable options like self storages where you get both work and storage space. Once that is settled, you can start to expand your workforce and work on your office infrastructure.
